Report: Patriots are releasing Martellus Bennett

One Bennett is getting traded. The other is getting released.

Not long after news broke that the Seahawks are trading defensive end Michael Bennett to the Eagles comes word that the Patriots will release tight end Martellus Bennett, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

That is a spirit the Democratic winner of last Tuesday’s primary is counting on in November. “There’s a massive upsurge in interest in the Democratic Party right now,” said Sean Casten, a clean-energy entrepreneur. “Trump has not done much that’s good for the party, but he’s certainly raised civic engagement.”

This month’s Democratic win in a special election in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District, a place Trump had won by nearly 20 points in 2016, showed the danger ahead for the GOP. Although the district was drawn for a Republican victory, including a broad rural expanse in the southwest part of the state, the success of former federal prosecutor Conor Lamb was driven by a dramatic shift in wealthier Pittsburgh suburbs like Bethel Park and Upper St. Clair.

Former Chargers quarterback Dan Fouts isn’t a fan of the PSL/SSLs.

It is ridiculous, Fouts told The Mark & Rich Show on XTRA 1360 in San Diego. PSLs are such a form of extortion it’s unbelievable, and yet they’re allowed. But that’s the way it is these days, and teams continue to sell out in a number of stadiums, obviously, around the country.

Yes they do. And PSLs wouldn’t be used if people didn’t buy them.

At least in the case of the Chargers and Rams, the stadium won’t be publicly financed. Rams owner Stan Kroenke is footing the bill, and whether the teams choose to use seat licenses and whether fans choose to pay for them is a business decision that each side has the right to make.
